One myth of awakening is that it roasts all our karma. It does roast much of our backlog, but the sprouted seeds that are unfolding continue to unfold during this life. We continue to work through our karma, but now from a new perspective.
In time, the awakening becomes established and we’re deeply grounded in our infinite and eternal nature. Events of the world have less and less impact. We simply experience what is arising, allowing it to complete with little friction. Karma arises and is resolved quickly and smoothly. As we make progress, we begin processing more and more of the collective backlog.
However, we all have a major blind spot or two and lessons that are a little more challenging. Even the awake are likely to experience circumstances that are more difficult. We may take a little more time to come to acceptance. But again, this can happen much faster than it would have prior. However, I’ve seen a few examples where the blind spot was large enough that it wasn’t seen or accepted, but acted out instead.
Recently, major karma has shown up here as an unexpected health challenge. This tested my depth of acceptance. It’s significant but treatable, something to work through and heal. It’s also clear I have Divine support through this necessary experience.
As a result, I’ve been more focused on self-care and less on spiritual musings. You’re likely to see less writing for a while. We’ll see how it unfolds. The net result should be a significant limitation falling away, both personally and collectively.
Today I became both a grandfather and a great uncle. Same day, different parts of the world.
Best of the season and a very Happy 2022!
